Second-year forward Jalen Smith headlines the Phoenix Suns’ NBA Summer League roster for 2021.

The Suns released their full roster for upcoming play in Las Vegas on Thursday.

Smith, the Suns’ first-round pick in 2020, will be joined by Ty-Shon Alexander, who spent the 2020-21 season with Phoenix on a two-way contract.

Brian Randle, who joined the Suns as an assistant coach in September 2020, will serve as head coach for the team, which tips off play Sunday.
